You may remember R. Lee Ermey from his outstanding performance in Full Metal Jacket or from his numerous TV appearances. He was recently on FOX and Friends to talk about guns and the video is going viral.

R. Lee Ermey Has Some Advice For Americans On Firearms–And Liberals Are Sure To Hate It
If R. Lee Ermey doesn’t ring a bell, he was the tough Marine drill sergeant that constantly berated Private Gomer Pyle (played by actor Vincent D’Onofrio) in Full Metal Jacket. Well, he’s also a strong Second Amendment enthusiast, who stopped by Fox and Friends to discuss his show Gunny Time for the Outdoor Channel. According to the website, Ermey focuses on “weapons and weapons technology past, present and future.”
Obviously, while on Fox, the issue of the Second Amendment came up, to which Ermey responded to the liberal nonsense being thrown out there about firearms:
“Criminals don’t go to the gun shops to buy their guns. Okay—let’s get this straight right now. The criminals buy their guns off the streets. And there are guns that aren’t legal. I mean, generally—you cannot go into a gun store and walk out with an AK-47. You just can’t do it; it’s against the law. If I’m a crook, if I’m a bad guy, where am I going to commit my crime? I’m going to see this sign that says gun-free zone, and I’m going to sure go in there and rob that store before I would this other one that says we don’t call 911…these thieves and robbers they go into a place because they want to rob you; they don’t go into a place because they want a gun fight. That’s crazy, right? I think everybody should be armed. Every normal, logical, levelheaded individual should be armed.“

Now that’s what we call “common sense” on guns.
